This brooch was made by crocheting a flower the same way I normally do, using the pattern from Attic24, but with a huge crochet hook and some string/twine I found in the hardware section of my local dollar store. Then I added a piece of doily and a vintage button. I love it. I included my hand in the photo so you get an idea of the size, it's pretty big.
I usually make cards for people, but then thinking about them throwing away my creations a few days later makes me cringe, so I thought I would try tags instead, and hopefully people will be more likely to reuse or display them, because they are a mini work of art. It could turn out to be just as pointless as fancy cards, but it was fun making them. I almost like them too much to give away.
Speaking of giveaway, I've been thinking about it for a while, and what better occasion for a giveaway than valentines day. It's gonna be a surprise package (because I haven't decided what's going in it yet) but I can guarantee it'll be good. There will be jewellery, some tags, some chocolate, and any extra goodies I can find. I'm only going to be able to post within NZ because I can't afford huge shipping costs at the moment, so if you live in NZ or know someone here who would appreciate a special package for valentines day, leave a comment on this post. Giveaway will be drawn on the morning of the 9th of Feb, so I can post it out in time for it to hopefully arrive on valentines day.
